Migration documentary

Now that spring migration is over, time to relax and enjoy bird videos!

Here's a documentary from PBS that mentions Magee Marsh in NW Ohio , a magical place I visited twice. Its possible there to get 30 species warblers in one day including the "holy grail"  Kirtlands Warbler

the title is

Flight Path: The World of Migratory Birds  ( it already aired on NYC PBS May 9th )


Enjoy the video on the link!
